A Patriotic Card

Artistic Outpost is holding a monthly referral program and this month the theme is SHADES OF RED.  For all the details pop over to the blog HERE.
It seemed very appropriate to use the LONDON UNDERGROUND and LOVERLY LONDON plates for my creation this week to co-ordinate with this months referral theme.  I created an easel card using red card stock. I added the union jack to the back of my card using a mask and applying Distress Inks fired brick and faded jeans.
I added two rosettes using Tim's mini die and added UK to the top of the rosettes.  My handsome gentleman was added to one corner stamped with vermillion Archival Ink.
I added a collage of London images to the top of the easel stamped again in vermillion Archival Ink, I love this colour, a real true red. Two rosettes complete the scene.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
